Example Itinerary

Day 1-3

DELHI, India

  • Discover the vibrant colours of the impressive Mughal-era Red Fort
  • Lose yourself in the organised chaos of Old Delhi’s ancient walls

A vast sprawling city providing constant stimulation, Delhi is steeped in history but simultaneously overflows with modernity.

Begin your adventure in India where you’ll spend two nights at The Imperial, buzzing with atmosphere and old-fashioned charm. Located in the colonial heart of New Delhi, it’s the perfect base for sightseeing. Spend a full day exploring New and Old Delhi, stopping at local attractions such as Chandni Chowk market, Jama Masjid mosque, and Humayun’s tomb. Discover the sights and smells of Chawri Bazaar on a street food tour before having a colling G&T in the 1991 old wood paneled gin bar.

Day 3-4

AGRA, India

  • Visit the Taj Mahal at night, lit by the moon’s natural light
  • Rise before dawn to be first into the Taj Mahal grounds for the most majestic sunrise

The Taj Mahal is truly a wonder of the world, for us it’s a must-see on any India itinerary.

Travel south to Agra where you’ll spend one night at the Oberoi Amarvilas. The only hotel with unobstructed vistas of the Taj Mahal, we will request a room with a balcony for optimal views and from your bed watch the enchanting son et lumière as the sun sets over the Taj. At sunrise, explore the world’s most exquisite testimony to undying love with the place to yourself (almost). The staff will purchase your entry tickets, book you a hand-picked guide and drive you to the gates of the ivory-white marble mausoleum in a golf buggy.

Day 4-7

RANTHAMBORE NATIONAL PARK, India

  • Seek out the bright orange stripes of the Royal Bengal tigers around the park
  • Enjoy the tranquility of bird-watching in the Banas riverbed

Stay in a wildlife reserve which used to be a former royal hunting ground, that tigers, leopards and marsh crocodiles now call home.

Continue south to Ranthambore National Park where you’ll spend three nights at the legendary Aman-i-Khas resort. Twice-daily jeep safaris promise great tiger sightings amongst a plethora of leopards, jackals, monkeys and sambar deer – spot Arrow Head, a young tigress who’s recently given birth to two young cubs. Head back to camp for a candle-lit, pool-side dinner before reminiscing your safari stories around the glowing fire pit under the enchanting starlit sky. With over 300 bird species, bird lovers can go trekking along the Banas riverbed. Upgrade and you will find yourself spotting leopards and exotic birds from the height of a hot air balloon.

Day 7-9

JAIPUR, India

  • Wander the streets of the Old Bazaar to find traditional embroidered goods created with gold and silver thread
  • Follow your guide for a street food tour of the city, trying regional delicacies such as freshly fried aloo tikki and samosas

The Pink City earned its name from the pink terracotta colour that its buildings have been adorned with and Jaipur is brimming with a rich royal heritage.

Arrive in Jaipur, Rajasthan’s capital, and spend two nights in the magnificent Taj Rambagh Palace. Once the private residence of the Maharaja of Jaipur, the moment you step through the gates you’ll be treated like royalty; revel at the expansive Mughal gardens, the rolling Aravali hills and dine at Suvarna Mahal for a dazzling palatial experience. Famous for markets and trading, head into the bustling Pink City on a walking tour and witness the thriving artisans, cuisine and crafts of old Japiur, opulent architecture and glorious bazaars.

Day 9-11

MUMBAI, India

  • Walk around Mumbai Harbour to explore the tiny settlement that blossomed into modern-day Mumbai
  • Take a boat day trip to nearby Elephanta Island and discover cave temples dedicated to the Hindu God Shiva

India’s capital and an Asian financial hub ensure Mumbai remains a modern city, with new experiences and restaurants constantly popping up.

End your holiday with a flight to Mumbai where you’ll spend two nights at the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel, one of the world’s most iconic hotels on the waterfront of Mumbai, overlooking the Arabian Sea and a stone’s throw from the Gateway of India. This is an incredibly atmospheric and fun city to explore; visit Crawford Market & Sassoon Market in the morning and explore the art galleries, museums, colonial architecture and antiques of Old Bombay by walking tour. Nearby the train station you’ll spot locals playing cricket – join in for a thrilling match, full of passion for the game.
